Exactly. A time before diversity is ahistorical.

Diversity is one of the most overrated concepts ever. I spit on it.

Let me put together a basketball team comprised on the 12 best players in the world, regardless of race.

You put together a diverse team, with a couple of blacks, a couple of whites, an asian, a hispanic, a cripple, a gay, a woman, etc.

My team would crush your team unmercifully.

Some of the strongest and most powerful civilizations in the world have been very diverse. Consider the Roman Empire. Or perhaps the United States.

Europe is a patchwork of religions, cultures and nationalities. And for years it hosted the dominant civilizations.

I would not hold diversity up as any kind of magic bullet. But I also don't think it is the sole cause of civil wars and genocides.

Certainly there is a rational middle way between these two extremes.

His “diverse is better” post was specific to business. Those are the studies I’d like to see, as it relates to race.

Diversity by itself is fine. Not necessary, but fine.

Forced or mandated diversity is just wrong and stupid. It goes against what America is really all about: being the best.

Agreed.

Forcing anything is generally a bad idea.

Give me the very best manager and workers for my business, regardless of race, gender, etc.

You can focus on getting a diverse staff - hire a black, a white, a hispanic, a gay, a hindu, etc.

My company will outperform your company every single time. Quality > diversity.

I agree completely. Just like ur sports analogy. That’s what I was thinking

The irony of this whole absolutely ridiculous line of thinking is this. On the one hand we are supposed to be “race blind” and focus on performance and character. (Which I agree with)

And in the next breath the idiots will nowbtrybtonforce diversity saying it’s good, we need quotas that measure we have the right number of each race and gender.

What???

If you hire just the best, you're also going to have a diverse company.

And this diversity will show up in many variables, not just race.

I'll be honest. When I think of diversity, race does not immediately come to mind. Rather I tend to think abut skills, preferences, values, aptitudes, personalties, tastes, and experiences.

This is the diversity that matters. Race is merely incidental.

Sadly, that is not where we are in America right now.

Whenever a newly elected president has to choose his cabinet, he always has to make sure there's a woman and a black and an asian, maybe a gay.

Our nation would be so much better off if we stopped emphasizing race and gender, and focused solely on being the absolute best.
